A point-of-sale, or POS system, is the combination of hardware and software that allows businesses that sell goods and services to accept payment from customers. Customers are at the point of sale when they’ve selected an item or items to buy and are ready to pay.
A basic POS system is used by businesses to automatically calculate price, determine sales tax, accept payment, print or email (or both) a receipt of the transaction, and handle banking needs. When software based, a POS system can be a traditional cash register or utilized as a mobile device.
More advanced POS systems allow sellers to gather data and use that data to understand consumer behavior, monitor inventory, and tailor marketing. They also provide the information they need to make strategic business decisions.
Retail is the sale of goods and services directly to customers. More often than not, retailers purchase their goods from manufacturers rather than manufacture their products themselves. A POS system enables retailers—whether in a brick-and-mortar store or at any retail event—to sell their goods in person through a credit card or cash/check transaction.
eCommerce is the sale of goods and services over the internet. Regardless of what type of eCommerce—business to consumer (B2C), business to business (B2B), consumer to consumer (C2C), or consumer to business (C2B)—individual retail businesses, distributors, and manufacturers choose to engage in, they require the ability to collect payment from their customers. With a POS system integrated within the website, customers have a simple, streamlined method of purchasing their items using a credit card or online payment services, like Apple Pay or PayPal.
Depending on the POS system a business chooses, there are varying levels of sophistication. With Acumatica Point of Sale (POS) Powered by Heuristyc, businesses have everything they need to manage all sales transactions from a single system.
For example, users are provided with integrated financials, CRM, tax management, PCI-compliant credit card processing, order management, inventory, purchasing, and business analytics and reporting. They are also able to connect popular POS hardware via the Acumatica Device Hub.
Though POS for retail and eCommerce differ slightly, Acumatica Point of Sale integrated with Acumatica’s Retail Edition delivers a seamless omnichannel sales experience, enabling customers to buy and, if needed, return items via any shopping method. For instance, they can buy an item online yet return it in-store.
In addition to deploying and managing Acumatica Point of Sale across multiple store locations, users have the connected hardware (e.g., cash registers, barcode scanning, receipt printers, and credit card terminals), back-office features (e.g., financials, business intelligence, and order/inventory/warehouse management), data capture capabilities, and more needed for a complete and streamlined sales management experience.
“You need to have a tool like Acumatica that’s integrated with all the other tools you have in place to meet Amazon-level consumer expectations.” – Ethan Platt, President & Co-Owner, American Meadows
